Losing weight and keeping it off can be a real challenge. Think of all those great, unhealthy foods when you go out to eat or during the holidays that you know you should stay away from but just can’t.
So, how can you be successful at it? I get this question all the time. The real key is building a lifestyle around losing weight and keeping it off that sticks. The good news is that it can be done without deprivation and pain.
Here are the top 3 characteristics of successful weight losers:
1. Having a clear goal in mind
What exactly do you want? Say you weigh 160 lbs and you know your ideal weight is 140 lbs. You know you need to lose 20 lbs of body fat and you want to look toned. Being specific gives you clarity and now you know what success looks like. That means more motivation and more success to achieving your weight loss goals.
2. Taking one step at a time
Take baby steps to changing your habits into healthy ones. Substitute that bad of chips for fruit instead of going totally junk food free. Break up a task into segments. Do one a day. If for example it’s grocery shopping for healthier foods and meals, plan your meals out first on one day. Then make your grocery list the next day. Pick a day to go to the store another day. And so on. You can even set a timer for yourself to reserve short periods of, like 5-15 minutes, to each broken down task.
3. Getting Support
Involve others, invoke a buddy system of people who will support you in your weight loss goals. This is one of the most important strategies. Getting support will significantly increase your chances of losing weight.
In fact getting support is the most effective way to lose weight permanently.
CHECK IT OUT:
I have put together a group weight loss coaching program with you in mind. Lose the weight and keep it off.
Have fun in the process and get a wonderful group of cheerleaders to support you.
You get the benefit of professional support and guidance – just like private coaching and
you will have a place to be accountable for the goals you set.
The group starts in just a few weeks and spots are limited. I keep my groups small so you get the most out of your time and the focus you need.
To sweeten the pot I have also added a 50% discount off the whole program to the person who loses the most amount of weight at the end.
